Bookshelf: The Collette Sewing Handbook

Having started sewing again after a 40-year break, my skills were a bit rusty. I bought the Collette Sewing Handbook to re-learn basic techniques, but the book offers much more than that. Sarai Mitnick provides a terrific framework for approaching sewing as a craft. She teaches you how to approach your sewing projects in the context of your overall skill development and wardrobe planning. And beyond that – her fashion designs are timeless and elegant. I’m planning on making most of the garments in this book, and I’ve already scoured the Collette patterns site to purchase more. If you are a new sewer, or if you want to expand your foundation, buy this book. You won’t be disappointed – instead, you’ll be inspired and energized!
